This is my series on Dramatic Audio Media, such as Old Time Radio ("The Shadow", "Gunsmoke", etc.), BBC Radio, and other classics -- but also, and most especially, the current renaissance of this art form, and how a person (like me, like you) can begin producing your own audio fiction or poetry or whatever for the enjoyment of countless others. This will be a learning process for me, and my mistakes might very well help you avoid any similar such in your own endeavors.

In Part 07, lostnbronx talks about his Tascam DR-40 solid state recording device, covers an OTR show of particular note, along with a new show that's also extremely cool, and then makes a plea for you to support your favorite artists.

Thanks for conpairing Zoom and Tascam

This ep came to mind recently when I was asked to forward the HPR H1 to another listener. I'd been looking for an excuse to by a recorder for myself, and the Tascam DR-05 came up in the same search as the Zoom H1. It's probably apples to oranges, but LnB, your preference for the Zoom tipped the balance.
